How would these exams benefit my child?
Firstly, these Mocks are conducted under exam conditions comparable to the actual exams. The actual exam will feel nothing like the practice sessions or even mocks done in the familiar circumstances and comfort of your home. Many years of first hand experience convinced us without any doubt how invaluable the benefits of expertly prepared and correctly organised mocks can be. Furthermore we keep a very keen eye on the premeditated philosophy behind the 11 Plus selection phenomenon, which shapes the question techniques and logic of the actual exam papers.
Second, soon after each month's exam you will receive the breakdown of scores, including raw percentage scores, standardised scores and ranks. Withing a week you will also receive a report detailing the breakdown of all question sections, examplified correct methodology for incorrectly answered questions, and recommendation on exam handling, time management knowhow tailored to your child's needs. Here is what parents think about the process: 'Whole of the Mock Exam experience was very positive and I thought that the organisation of the test was at a very high standard (we've tried other Mocks - so have something to compare with). Also, the feedback on performance that we got, by a long mile, the most informative, comprehensive and relevant than any other feedbacks that we've received from other 11+ Centres. (You are free to select any or all of the mock tests on offer any time 48 hours prior to the corresponding Mock date.)
